Fantastic Story Openings

Year 4 have been busy this week making some fantastic story openings. Here is an example… 

 

A long time ago there was a mammoth celebration because the power-hungry, mighty Julius Caesar had returned from  a ferocious war victorious. The old, narrow streets were filled with Roman citizens cheering and chanting Caesar’s name. Suddenly an unknown figure approached Julius from under the midday shadows he whispered, “Beware the Ides of March.”  After the games, Caesar didn’t look pleased. The two senators, Brutus and Cassius, are green with envy after Caesar’s success over Pompey. Meanwhile, Casca was explaining to Brutus and Cassius why Julius looked devastated. After that Mark Antony offered Caesar the crown but he rejected it. To his dismay the roared wildly. Cassius was not happy and desired to kill Caesar. During a violent storm the murder was conspired to be completed on the Ides of March.

Wonderful character descriptions

This week in year four the children have been working hard creating a character description of Julius Caesar. They are all great but here is an example… 

Standing in the loud audience I was astonished by the beautiful sight. Slowly, Julius Caesar stepped onto the hard, stone podium with a nice gleaming smile. Adjusting his golden crown, Julius Caesar’s cherry red cloak started swaying around in the calm, warm breeze. On top of his head was a glistening, golden herald crown, so no one could see his bald patch. Carefully, he raised his dirty, black hands to the stop the people shouting his name. Swinging in the air, his black jet hair shivered while his body was shaking with fear. All the while his wrinkles were getting deeper and deeper….  EAGLE CLASS    

 

Julius Caesar was a ruthless and cunning man. Loudly, the gigantic excited crowd cried out Julius Caesar’s name as he put on his leafy crown on his head to cover his bald spot. Glaring with his dark brown eyes at the crowd his rich purple cloak blows in the wind, as he smiles brightly. As black as coal his eyes looked at the crowd one more time and then he slowly walked up the stairs slowly to the temple and heard someone calling his name. Then a soothsayer came out of the shadows he has a white beard and he was old. His words were “Beware the ides of March.” Not caring at all what the man said Caesar said ” come on my friends lets leave him” At mid-day Caesar still thought about the man’s words….

Welcome Back Eagle and Hawk Class…. 2019!!!

We hope you have had a lovely hoilday and a good rest!

 

Here is an overview of what we have instore this term.

This term our topic is Romans. This term the children will learn that the Romans invaded and settled in Britain, and they will discover what life was like in Roman Britain.

In Literacy we will be focusing on writing to entertain this term.  To link with our topic of Romans, we will be reading Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar and re-writing it as a narrative.  The children will work on writing setting and character descriptions, and then write the story.

In maths we will be learning about multiplication and division.  The children will need to know their 7, 8, 9 and 11 times tables by the end of this term and this will be helped with regular practice on Time Tables Rock Stars at home.  They will learn to use formal methods to multiply and divide and towards the end of the term we will move on to fractions.  To link with our topic, the children will also learn to identify and use Roman numerals.

In Science children will be learning about states of matter.  We will investigate solids, liquids and gases and how they can change.  The children will learn what a particle is, and how the water cycle works.

As the weather becomes colder and wetter, children often need their PE kit to get changed into, if their clothes get wet on the way to school.  Therefore it is imperative that their PE kits are in school at all times.

Year 4 have PE twice a week this term.  They may need track suit bottoms or leggings for doing PE outside. 

I have attached a link to this terms homework grid and news letter below.

As always any questions please do not hesitate to speak with us.

String Telephone Investigation

The children investigated with sound to find out which materials allow sound to pass through them. They discovered that sound can pass through wood, metal and string. 

The children made string telephones to test their ideas. They found out that the string had to be tight to allow the vibrations to travel along it.
